Spring Fever FAQ

Why is Spring Fever different than any other day?

April 16 – 20, 2018 will mark Radford University’s second annual campus-wide Spring Fever. We want to make a tremendous and historic impact in just one week. From April 16 –20, we are putting our seven colleges against each other to see who can garner the most supporters during the one-week competition. During the first ever Spring Fever last year, over 209 donors gave more than $45,000—an incredible contribution to the future of Radford University and its students!

What if I’ve already made my gift for this fiscal year (I donated between July 1, 2017 – April 15, 2018)?

Thank you for your loyal support! You can help your college/program win the Spring Fever competition by April 20 by making an additional nominal gift ($5 minimum) to support your college/program of interest!
